This product was created to help teach students how to write linear equations from word problems. The problems are modeled as slope-intercept equations. Often, it is difficult for students to learn this skill/concept.
The product starts with an example that the teacher may model for the student. All problems have similar types of answers as the teacher model.
Thereafter, there are 6 such linear equation scenarios that the students may practice with. Each problem has all of the steps that the modelling one has, thus, the step-by-step approach to learning. Four of the problems have positive rates, and two of the problems have negative rates.
After the students have completed this exercise, it is hoped that they may tackle word problems on their own.
I am so excited about this product, because this is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time and, finally, completed and am able to share!
Answers are included.
